The comments of how Utah are all ready here and it started with Nick Saban "his team was the only one that plays in a real BCS conference that went 12-0." He also said "Our players are certainly disappointed," in reference to not making the BCS title game. Coach come on the SEC was down this year and was not their typical dominant conference and the best win that Alabama has, Georgia, was not as good as Utah's win over TCU.

Alabama's biggest win was over Georgia who finished 9-3. The Crimson Tide have a great defense, but Utah will hang and their defense is just as good as Alabama. On offense Utah's offense is better then 'B ama yes they have Glenn Coffee at runnign back and Julio Jones at wide out but thats it, their quarterback play is marginal. The Tide will play tough and might wear down Utah but my early prediction is that the Sugar Bowl be like the TCU game, well I think TCU has a better offense then Alabama.
